1st trip
this hike was an attempt to summit golden dome, following routes posted by @chumley and @dixieflyer
two peaks, two arches and a trip down black glass canyon are featured
got an early start and enjoyed the trails to wishbone junction
(i just learned exactly where this is, according to tenny's gps coordinates)
a bit in the wash, then the off trail began
pretty good bushwhack uphill on loose rock, not terrible but time-consuming
vegetation seems a little more overgrown than usual this spring
finally made it to pedestal arch
there is definitely an easier way to get to this point
ray wasn't feeling the peaks, and he wanted to cut the route and meet us near black glass canyon
i wasn't comfortable at all with us splitting up, so we descended from there
upon further review, it might have been nice to cut over to black glass canyon
looks like there is a [ gps route ] for that option
after dropping back down we still had to get back to our trail, so we got to experience an off trail "shortcut" :)
nice day, good company, always fun to be out in the goldfields
i'm gradually learning some of the trail names and landmarks
ray treated us to lunch at the gecko grill in gilbert - thank you!
i had the grilled gecko :lol:
enjoyed meeting rhonda
we'll try again with a different route to pedestal arch, but maybe not this spring
golden dome will still be there
another thought is to take black glass canyon up to 3141, over to golden dome and return the same way
no need to see pedestal arch a third time
kudos to those who completed this loop; it's a good one
nice to be out with ray and john again

I'm going to piggy back off of Kelly's trip log, which sums up our day very nicely. Thank you Kelly and John, again, for your patience and understanding. One of these days we'll get it right.

Despite not achieving our objective, it's always a great day when you're hiking in the Goldfields. I came back whooped and scratched, but those are minor inconveniences compared to great company and wonderful scenery.

Another foray into the delightful Goldfields. I'm starting to recognize some of the places I've been before. Hiking off trail was looser and brushier than usual for this area. Got a little scratched up, but nothing worth wearing pants for.

Flowers are still looking good. The geology here is relentlessly interesting and great for hiking.

A 29 year old joined us, and a 79 year old left us. :lol: Always a pleasure to hike with Ray and Kelly. Rhonda joined us for lunch and reminded us how compassionate Ray is. Though the other half of the story is much more interesting.

Good times. Thanks you two. :)

1st trip
On my last day out hiking before heading back to Tucson I decided to head back to the Goldfield Mountains. This hike would be an exploratory hike, "Fly by the seat of the pants", "go which ever way the wind blows". In spite of researching names of trails I could not find much, HAZ had a lot of different routes with names but some were trails some were routes. There were no definite boundaries to the trail starts and ends. So this hike I would walk a few of the routes posted and see what happens. I also plotted a few routes from google earth that look like trails.

Started at the Willow Springs Canyon Trail Head and hiked up Willow Springs Canyon. This trail/4WD road is labeled as 12 which leads to at least Bagley Tank. I Took 12 (two track) to about half way to Bagley Tank and the wind blew in a different direction and I headed back to Willow Spring Canyon. There were some rock tanks along the creek to Bagley Tank that still had pools of water in them, otherwise the creek was dry. I followed Willow Spring Canyon up to where Willow Spring Basin Tank is. There is a 4WD road leaving the wash heading to the tank. Willow Spring Basin Tank was filled to the brim. From the tank I headed south along a trail I spotted on Google earth. Turns out this trail is what is called the Golden Eye Mine Trail. Really nice horse trail. This trail terminates along what appears to be the Quartz Crystal Canyon Trail near the junction with the Gold Eagles Nugget Trail.

Returned via the Gold Eagles Nugget Trail that I was on the night before. Wasn't long before the wind changed direction again and I took a trail that splits off to the north from Gold Eagles Nugget Trail. I spotted this trail on Google earth and it heads back to Willow Spring Basin Tank. This is another good trail and stays to the east of Golden Eye Mine Trail on the ridge west of Willow Spring Canyon. On HAZ a portion of this trail is listed under Little Chance Canyon loop. If I were naming trails I would call this the Willow Spring Basin Tank Trail that connects the Gold Eagles Nugget Trail to Willow Spring Basin Tank. I hiked this half way to where it drops down close to Willow Spring Wash and took that back to the Willow Spring Canyon Trail Head. Will have to finish this up on another hike.

Nice hike for a day after a long hike. Fairly easy walking with great scenery. It's nice sometimes to hike without a destination, just walk until you get tired. I have come up with some names for these trails that I was on that set well in my mind.

WILLOW SPRING CANYON TRAIL: Follows up Willow Spring Canyon
GOLDEN EYE MINE TRAIL: Willow Spring Basin Tank to Quartz Crystal Canyon Trail
GOLD EAGLES NUGGET TRAIL: Willow Spring Canyon Trail to Quartz Crystal Canyon Trail
WILLOW SPRING BASIN TANK TRAIL: From Gold Eagles Nugget Trail to Willow Springs Basin Tank
BAGLEY TANK TRAIL: 4WD route from Willow Spring Canyon to Bagley Tank

Finished the Hoolie Bacon hike with 17.3 miles but that's such an ugly number I decided to do a hike in the Goldfield Mountains to round up the day with 20 miles. I like that number much better. This was another hike around sunset. Access to the trail is from the Willow Springs Canyon Trail Head and follows the Willow Spring Canyon Trail for about .2 miles before heading west between two unnamed hills. Followed this trail for about a mile to where it joined another trail that I don't have a name for. None of the trails are marked and I could find very little information on trail names (other than trail names given by mountain bikers which don't match hikers trail names). In spite of not knowing anything about any of the trails in this area, this was a pleasant hike at sunset.

I hiked the Willow Basin Loop for the first time - sorta. Hiked up the trail clockwise, but then dipped down and followed the canyon trail and route to rejoin the Basin Loop trail in the long, straight road/wash. I then turned back and hiked counterclockwise back to the trailhead with a slight variation.

1st trip
Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, had been wanting to go hike Black Glass Canyon, so we decided to go hike in the canyon and also check out a couple of peaks and a couple of arches.

I had seen a triplog and a GPS track that Chumley posted last month in which he climbed up Golden Dome and Peak 3141, so we decided to bag those as well. Along the way we also went to Pedestal Arch and viewed Triple Arch while in Black Glass Canyon.

We started and ended the hike at the Willow Canyon TH, which is at mile marker 204 on Highway 88. It was my first time to this TH.

The hike started out easy enough, but after 3 miles or so it became a total off-trail cross country bushwhack/scramble.

Our first stop was at Pedestal Arch, which was neat to see. We eventually made our way to Golden Dome, and climbed up it via the short chute that Chumley went up on the NW side of the Dome -- he picked a good route up. The views atop the Dome were really nice -- much better than being on Dome Mountain, the high point in the Goldfields. We descended the summit the same way that we came up, and then went over to Peak 3141. The climb up was easy, but the descent down the east side was steep and very slow going...but we eventually made our way down, and went over to Black Glass Canyon. I enjoyed the canyon, although there were a few tricky descents. While in the canyon we were able to see Triple Arch, although we didn't feel like climbing up to the arch. Once we got out of Black Glass Canyon, we started back in Rough-N-Rowdy Canyon and took a look at a few caves that were there.

After climbing these 2 peaks, I have now climbed atop 11 of the 17 highest peaks in the Goldfields. Maybe I will get the other 6 someday.

Before going up to Golden Dome, I briefly thought about checking out Tuff Dome. It might be a doable climb, but it looked pretty steep from a distance.

We didn't see any wildlife on the hike, but didn't see any other humans either. I guess that 1 out of 2 ain't bad!

Patrick has this itch to backpack the length of the Goldfields and has been doing recon hikes to make sure it can be done. One place he wasn't sure about was near Golden Dome. So his plan was to make a day trip out of it, bagging the dome along the way.

It was over 3 hours and 5.5 miles before I was informed that he had no idea whether or not Golden Dome was actually able to be climbed. ](*,) I got a signal on a high point and did a quick search on some summity peaky websites and came up empty. Oh well. We studied the terrain, looked for the best options, and headed to the west saddle to check out the north side of the dome since it was abundantly clear that the south slopes would not provide a route up.

From the saddle the easiest climb leads to a solitary saguaro, but I knew from the recon view that getting up from there wouldn't work. Just left of the saguaro chute was a parallel chute with a little brush that looked reasonably well protected. Or we considered looping the peak to the east nose to see what we would find there. I opted to head up the chute while the others decided to see how I did. :sweat:

With a couple of tricky moves I was able to get up a couple of layers and learned shortly thereafter that I would be able to make the summit from this way. I yelled to the others and Justin and Patrick headed up behind me. The others decided to swing around and check the east side.

Once on the summit I headed east to see if there was a route, and was happy to find an easy scramble with a single 8-foot pitch with some good holds. It was a little exposed but I decided that I would go down this way rather than the way I had gone up. The others came around and climbed up this way. On the downclimb, I went down first and then spotted the others as there were a couple of footholds that couldn't be seen from above.

Having done both, I think I would stick to the chute we ascended rather than the climb on the eastern nose next time. Though both are certainly doable.

From there we headed over to peak 3141 before dropping down into a beautiful canyon that headed back to Willow and the quick hike back to the truck.

For such a distinctive, good-looking peak, I was surprised not to see a HAZ ascent posted, though I believe that @CannondaleKid was here back in 2013.

Decided to make a return trip to Helmet Rock to see if there was another route to the top of the Helmet where the grade to pebble ratio was less. Arrived at a full Willow Spring TH which surprised me. On my trip in I caught up to and passed a group of 34 hikers which explained the full TH :o Since I was solo on this trip I wasn't planning on going to the top of the Helmet however before I knew it I was there. Took a couple photos and then basically scooted back down as I locked in my heels to avoid slipping. Did some exploring on the upper and lower sections as this area has a lot to offer and then made my way back to a now empty parking lot. Great day outside.

Belated post. Second hike of the day. After the Wave Cave drove over to the Goldfield to follow up on a trail that I had come across a couple months ago while doing the Javelina Mine Trail. Part of the problem with doing unmarked, unsigned trails is that you may not know what trail you are doing and there is a chance that different people will have different names for the trail. That seems to be the case here.

I got on the trail around 8am. Starting from a pull off around mile marker 203 on highway 88, and followed the Javelina Trail (which starts off as a dirt road but turns into a single track as it turns north. At 1.5 miles in I reached a juncture and turned toward the east and headed up a wash, following a faint trail and periodic cairns that brought me to a saddle. Along this route I came across a stake with the words Gold Eagle Nugget 3 N.W. impressed on a small metal plate. (This made me think that I was on the Golden Eagle Nugget Trail, but HAZ seems to say otherwise). Anyway, upon reaching the saddle, I didn't see an obvious trail (or cairn), so I decided to make my way towards the highest "peak". This took me to the south. Along the way I did come across occasional cairns but no define trail to tie them together. I also came across several other stakes, one of which had Gold Eagle Nugget 1 stamped on it. There are three high points on this mountain, the highest point being the furthest to the east. It was fun going along this ridgeline and I great views of the surrounding vista (and perhaps a good view of what is described as the Golden Nugget Trail in HAZ off to the north of the trail that I used to reach this peak). The highest peak had a register which I signed. Looks like the peak gets about 20 visits a year. On the way back down I visited the other high point that was north and west of the saddle I described. I think this got me fairly close to overlooking the Javelina Mine claim though I couldn't identify it from where I stood. Actually got side tracked on the way back. I picked up the Javelina at the juncture where I left it but about .3 miles on the way back I strayed onto a trail that swung to the west of the Javelina. I didn't know this trail existed and it took me a good 5 minutes to for my realize that I was on a different trail. I wasn't overly worried as I was going in the right direction. As it turned out, it was just on the other side of the hills of Javelina Trail and it wrapped right into that trail where it turned north. It made for a nice loop, but I'm not sure if that trail has a name. It is a very defined trail so I would assume that it does.

Really enjoyed this hike. Feel a little guilty posting this description under Gold Eagle, when it is clearly not the Gold Eagle described in HAZ. But I'd didn't see any descriptions that came close to what I did and there was evidence on this hike that at least someone had considered this to be the Gold Eagle Nugget. If anyone can add clarification to the mountain that I did or the Trai. That I came back on it would be greatly appreciated. (We need to get someone to be the official trail marker for the Goldfield area. Looks to be some good trails out there, but no consistent, universal info on them). Had the trails to myself, though I did see motor bikes off in the distance. No wildlife. Great weather!

Willow Canyon Trailhead
6:37am Cold start, pants kept it bearable.

Gold Eagles Nugget Trail
Nice trail, great condition. I'm not sure if the trail is local or FS maintained... regardless, the FS would be smart to sign and designate official trails.

Quartz Crystal Arroyo
Course variation of @AZLOT69's description.The trail through here is impressively manicured and quick.

Razorback Knob
No matter how you slice it this is a fanciful orchestra of terrain! Hit it sunrise or sunset! We missed that light, 'twas dazzling in the previous two paragraphs. Like crackin' the whip on Breezin Lad early 90's this is a guaranteed winner.

Camouflage Tanks
The tanks have been replaced. As a result, they are not camouflaged anymore. We didn't follow @sventre's description route but it's cool to now know about the Cottonwood Spring access into the Goldfields! Worthy destination for the views alone.

Black Glass Canyon - aka Obsidian
Snazzy obstacle course canyon. Similar to the huge boulder entrance of Peter's Canyon with Fish Creek (upper bridge) accents. Slow going and just barely in my current ability range. Didn't know to look for the triple arch. The canyon is plenty to engage my attention.

Willow Springs Canyon Lower
Never ending sinking steps sand/gravel creek beds rate pure hell in my book. The view at shoreline is the inlet not the lake view desired. Met two friendly kayakers a tenth of a mile from the lake.

Willow Springs Canyon to Willow Springs Basin Tank
No thank you. Joe wake up, never do this again.

Willow Springs Basin Tank to Willow Canyon Trailhead
Back on trails, life is good.

I'd never done anything in the Goldfields before, so I PM'd The Gecko that Treks for some suggestions. She through out a few suggestions and I ended up putting a twist on one that she and LP had just finished.

We started at the Willow Canyon TH at first light. None of the trails out here are signed, but most are in great shape. Temps. in the 30's forced a brisk pace to start. The sweet geology was painted in orange, with the rising sun.

The first off trail section took us to what are no longer the Tanks that were camouflaged. This is an interesting area that has seen recent improvements. For the life of me, I can't figure out how the water gets from the Tanks to the higher in elevation trough.

We worked our way downhill to my favorite part of the hike, Black Glass Canyon. Practicing Safety First, we worked our way through the many obstacles in this canyon getting to Willow Creek. From here it was a bit more than 2 miles to get to Saguaro Lake/Salt River. Almost to the lake, we ran into a couple of ladies coming in from the lake, that thought they'd discovered a new canyon. :lol:

I had plans to do some additional off trail exploring from here, but the canyon walls did not cooperate. So we reversed direction and headed back up Willow Creek. Joe enjoyed this portion so much that for the next 3.5 miles all I head was Bla, Bla, Bla.

Finally out of the creek bed and back on a trail it was smooth sailing back to the trailhead. Looks like there's plenty more areas to check out.

For the most part, we followed Sventre's GPS route for this hike, starting from the SR88. To get to Black Glass Canyon, we started from Willow Springs Canyon and went Southwest, up into the canyon. Then, when we rejoined with the nameless canyon to the East, rather than head North back to Willow Springs Canyon, we headed South (up the wash). Then we cut East over the yellow rock ridge, back to the road along Willow Springs Canyon.

The hike into the mouth of Black Glass Canyon was probably my favorite part. After getting into the canyon I was surprised to find someone else in the canyon, hiking around the cliffs opposite from the arch. We met him later and it turns out he spends a lot of time out here, looking for more arches. :)

The climb to the arch was fun. There was a beehive very close to the arch, but I didn't see too many bees.
